Genetec Inc. (“Genetec”), a technology provider of unified security, public safety, operations, and business intelligence solutions, announced Synergis™ IX, a new line of hardware that combines access control and intrusion monitoring. The Synergis IX devices are designed to work with the Genetec™ Security Centre platform to unify access control and intrusion functions with video surveillance, communications and more. Synergis IX is available immediately in Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) from Genetec partner Hills Limited.
By adopting a line of hardware combining access control and intrusion devices in a single platform, customers can significantly reduce installation time and total cost of ownership, while achieving operational efficiencies and gaining greater insight into their security environment.
Access control and intrusion hybrid solutions
"For both regulatory and practical reasons, our customers in Australia and New Zealand require hybrid solutions that offer both access control and intrusion in one device. Synergis IX provides this all-in-one access control and intrusion monitoring solution but opens the door to greater efficiency through Security Centre, which unifies video surveillance, communications and other security systems under the same platform," said Thibaut Louvet, Director of Access Control Product Group at Genetec Inc.
Featuring a broad range of hybrid controllers, modules, readers, and keypads, Synergis IX enables users to control and monitor a scalable number of intrusion areas, doors, cardholders, and other field devices regardless of geographical location. With digital certificate support, claims-based authentication, and end-to-end encrypted communications, security throughout every layer of the architecture is ensured.
"The security market in Australia and New Zealand continues to grow at an exponential rate, with a tremendous appetite for solutions that enable customers to manage all of their security systems on a single interface. We are excited to work with our partners Hills Limited to bring Synergis IX to the ANZ market," said Daniel Lee, Managing Director for Genetec APAC.
